legitimate and elected government be able to push back against terrorists. this is a fight that's bigger than just iraq. >> proper prominent republican senators said they viewed the deteriorating situation on the ground in iraq as an indictment of the obama administration's foreign policy. senators something cane and graham detail what they perceived as major failings in a joint statement that says this. quote, when president obama withdrew all forces in iraq in 2011 over the objections of our military leaders and commanders on the ground many predicted that the vacuum would be filled by america's enemies and would emerge as a threat to u.s. national security interests. sadly, that reality is now clearer than ever. earlier today the deputy national security adviser tony lincoln spoke with iraq's national security adviser to promise american cooperation in helping isolate that local al qaeda branch, isil, and we know
they also both agreed they need to get neighboring countries involved more to help rid the area of the terrorists. greg? >> peter, thanks very much. >> fox news extreme weather alert now and historic breeze that hasn't been seen in the better part of 40 years now digging its teeth from midwest to the northeast. fresh snow is polling in making conditions worse in several places like missouri. there is a picture there along with frigid air. janice dean has more on this record cold. >> thanks, greg. yes. we are talking about historic temperatures. take a look at our morning lows across the northern planes and upper midwest and great lakes. international falls, minus 31. these are actual air temperatures. not windchill. minus 28 in minneapolis on monday morning. minus 14 in chicago. minus 22 in green bay.

proves that she can come out of this very strongly. >> we know -- the family has a facility for jahi. she believes if jahi's heart was beating and responded to them, her mother's voice, and also her touch, then the girl was alive. she then added it was in god's hands. these are actually identical sentiments to the family's proceed found beliefs in this controversy. a press conference is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. eastern time when we will have more details about this. it was on friday that jahi's family reached an agreement with children's hospital oakland that she could be moved while on a ventilator. however, her mother, as part of the agreement, must take full responsibility for her during the transfer and even if jahi's heart stops beating while that move takes place. children's hospital has been unwavering on the established medical ethics in situations

what is the deal? let's ask senior business correspondent brenda butner anchor of "bulls and bears." i bought my daughters 5-inch tv and you can sit around and eat my wife's famous cheese dip and you don't have to fight traffic and pay high prices. >> well, you bought your kids that tv. right? >> wink, wink. >> right. i mean, viewing experience is so incredible. there are multiple screens. you can watch a lot of games. there's ticket prices and there's traffic and there's parking costs. there is no cell phone in a lot of the stadiums. a lot of people are saying, i'm going to stay home and watch the game. >> the in-home viewing experience is so dramatically changed over the last 30, 4050 years. my friend cole whoyn used to play football for san diego, he e-mailed me this. he goes to every chargers home
game. i said, you know, why do you do it? let's put up on the screen. you said can you not experience the crowd. plus, you get to bond with your son. >> that's a fair point it is absolutely fair point. when you are there, you are part of the game. when you are at home, you are watching it. you are -- there peace is distance. i mean, if i had a chance to be with the buckeyes and the students for ohio state, that would be absolutely incredible. >> we are talking about the in-home viewing experience. you can literally now watch multiple games simultaneously. split the screen up. i could have watched yesterday the colts beat the chiefs while simultaneously watching the irish beat duke, basketball. you can watch all -- you can check out the rerun, victorious secret fashion show if you want to do that. >> for your kids.
>> it is for the kids. >> yes. >> but it is so much better than when i was a kid and little black and white in the corner. >> let's not date ourselves. right. yeah. i mean, did you have to -- move up the antenna and everything. >> yeah, you did. my dad got -- go like this. don't move. what about the economic factors? you just finished the holiday season. people are spent-out right now. >>y buy had a. >> really? >> monno. >> the last time they had a blackout was 2002. we had the great recession since then. i don't think it is economic. i think it has to doing with the viewing. look at the packers. do you have a more passionate fan base than that? and to not sell out? that's saying something. >> well, and -- you know, one wonders about the smaller markets. green bay and cincinnati and so on and so forth, whether that has an impact on it at all. by the way, the niners probably better suited to playing green
bay than the packers are. >> well, because of the rushing. right? >> aaron rodgers grew up in chico, california, colin kaepernick grew up in milwaukee. >> these a while back. but getting the ball from the quarterback to the rusher in this kind of weather is like throwing a brick covered with ice. i don't think -- >> 49ers, frank gore. all right. coldest game in nfl history. game temp was minus 48 degrees. this -- famous ice bowl. remember that? that was great. green bay over those villainous dallas cowboys. that's where my wife is from. boy, that was just awful. but the game now is -- today's game is going to be worse. >> yeah. >> allegedly. >> your wife will not make that chili dip for you. >> i know how to make it. >> i'm glad your kids will enjoy the tv watching this afternoon. >> brenda, good as
always. >> nice to see you as well. >> bitter battle over extending unemployment benefits moving forward on capitol hill. president obama urging bipartisan support but if he doesn't get it, what does it mean for the millions of americans who are still out of work? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. live the regular life. phillips'.
welcome back. the u.s. senate is now preparing to tackle the hot-button issue of unemployment. and the big question, whether or not to stepped benefits for millions of out-of-work americans by three months. the debate is certainly pitting republicans against democrats yet again. senator rand paul said a solution needs to help those get jobs to get them off unemployment. >> what i would like to do when we get back, one, if we extend
it, pay for it, but two, add something to it that would create jobs. so what i've been promoting are economic freedom zones which has unemployment one and a half times the national average, we would lower taxes to stimulate and spur the economy and create jobs. >> in the meantime, senator chuck schumer said any decision to stop the benefits will only hurt republicans in the midterms. >> this year, dealing with declining middle class incomes, and not enough job growth, will be the number one issue. and if on the first day of the new session the republican party said they won't extend unemployment extension, the initial round was started by george bush when unemployment was 5.6%, they'll show themselves so far out of the mainstream they'll hurt themselv themselves. >> chuck schumer articulates the very argument against himself, unwittingly perhaps, and that is to say unemployment checks began
over five years ago. my goodness, it's been renewed more than ten times. these extensions, bob, were meant to be temporary. but some people have been collecting checks now for the better part of two years. at what point did the government say, hey, enough. >> there are two things here. unemployment rate is at a five-year low. however, long-term unemployment is still sky high. so you have these two competing factors, and what rand paul today said, i think a significant shift from what he told chris wallace a month ago, he said extending unemployment benefits would be a disservice to the workers. this will split the gop, no doubt. some say enough is enough, we need to stop extending this. but other republicans, and i think republican leaders will embrace this approach. the number one issue has got to be obama care, in 2014, an election year. so i think the republicans are going to move on this. >> senator rand paul makes the point that he's not against helping the jobless by extending benefits, as long as these
checks are actually paid for in some way. because, bob, the cost to taxpayers is $25 billion per year. so number one, you've got to pay for them, he says, but number two, target the depressed areas and give those folks, you know, tax relief to spur economic growth. rehab the labor market, create jobs. is there an appetite for that on capitol hill? >> well, there might be. i think it's very difficult to pass anything in an election year. democrats last month, they did not insist that this extension be part of the paul rand-murray budget deal. they clearly see this as a winning issue. you know, harry reid is going to have this on the senate froor as early as tomorrow. there's no doubt about the politics here at play. democrats think they have a winning issue and they'll force republicans to -- you know, this bill on the senate floor is not paid for yet. >> right. >> but speaker boehner said,
hey, i'm open to this, but it's got to be paid for. for republicans it could be a trap. this could be a three-month extension we're having this conversations months down the road. republicans, maybe they go for a longer term deal, and try to pay for it. paying for things is not easy, but you can always do it in washington through the accounting gimmicks, et cetera. >> in the utopian world, people take the jobs they want and not the jobs they have to take. but we do not live there. if the government stops supporting people with checks, some of those people will actually be forced to make tough decisions, take lower wage jobs, change careers, change your job, or simply take a job that they didn't necessarily want. but the argument that rand paul and others make is that, you know what, sometimes you have to do the tough thing. >> yes. and it's difficult to do the tough thing, especially in an election year. in this group of people, there have been so many people who are trying to get jobs, and there
are certainly people who have been collecting jobs who are not trying to get jobs. that's going to be the argument that divides the gop. it will be interesting to see what ted cruz says this week. the parties will deal on this and make it retroactive. >> unemployment dropped to 7%, it's hard for the obama white house and democrats to say, we did a wonderful job, but let's keep paying out the jobless benefits. bob, could to see you, as always. >> thanks. that's going to do it for us. i'm greg. carol alt is coming up next. have a great week, everybody. good-bye. my name is suzy.
